I’ve heard that swaddling has been proven to help babies sleep better, longer, and safer. It reduces incidences of SIDS, colic and fussiness, and it can help make breastfeeding easier. I understand the benefits of swaddling but, as a first time mother, I question how should I swaddle my baby? How tight should the swaddle be? How can I maximize the effects of the swaddle? Basically, how do I know if I’m doing it right? The Woombie is a safe, comfortable, and effective way to swaddle my baby, encouraging her to softly stretch extremities as needed, just like in the womb. It’s an effective way to know I’m doing it right because all I need to do is zipper it up and tuck in the zipper.
The Woombie comforts, softly confines arms, and gently compresses the baby’s unique curves to prevent the startle reflex, face scratching, overheating, and also preventing dangerous loose unraveled blankets from covering the baby’s face, which was my biggest concern with swaddling. The soft cotton fabric gently hugs the baby providing a comfortable secure transition from the womb to the world. It’s easy to use and doesn’t require any additional skills other than working a zipper.
So many new parents and babies are achieving a smooth transition from womb to 6 months; I’m hoping that the Woombie will support that transition for us.
